An important 19-minute TED Talk from author and philanthropist Dan Pallotta on the state of nonprofit funding, donor investment and the potential of the nonprofit sector to solve large problems at scale.
From the producers:
"Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world."
